What to Do If Google News Isn’t Indexing Your Site

I’m writing this because this recently happened to us here at BestTechie after we pushed our redesign live — all of the sudden our latest content stopped appearing on Google News. “What gives?” I thought. The weird thing to me was that for a few days after the redesign went live our articles were still being indexed, nonetheless, suddenly they just stopped showing up. Like any publisher, I was determined to fix it.

Below I’m going to outline various things I tried to get our content back into the [...]

New Moto 360 and ZenWatch Wearables Looming

Android Wear has been around for roughly a year, and that means it’s about time for new devices featuring Google’s wearable operating system to start making their way to store shelves.

This entry in Bluetooth SIG seems to indicate the new Moto 360 is in the midst of testing.

Domino’s Lets You Order a Pizza in the Most Ridiculous Way Possible

Domino’s CEO Patrick Doyle says, “It’s the epitome of convenience.”

I think it’s silly.

I’m talking about the newest way to order a pizza from Domino’s — via tweet. But here’s where things get ultra-weird. You can either send a tweet to Domino’s using #EasyOrder… or you can send the pizza emoji.

This thing. 

We’ve seen companies fool around with accepting orders on Twitter — Amazon’s #amazoncart comes to mind — but none [...]

Analyst Says iPhone 6s Will Feature 2GB RAM, Rose Gold Case

When it comes to predicting the future of our gadgets, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is usually one to watch, since his predictions tend to come true—or pretty close to it. For weeks, he’s been making predictions about Apple’s efforts to make a new version of the iPhone 6, casually referred to as the iPhone 6s, and Tuesday is no different.

The new iPhone 6s might continue with Apple’s trend of gold obsession.

According to Kuo, as reported by a post on AppleInsider, the new iPhone 6s will [...]

Verizon Buying AOL for $4.4 Billion

It’s the way of all things: AOL, which owns several web-based media outlets including TechCrunch, Engadget, and Huffington Post, among others, is being acquired by Verizon for $4.4 billion in cash. The upshot here is that AOL will live on as a Verizon subsidiary, and it gives Verizon a new avenue to provide video content to its customers.

“Verizon’s acquisition further drives its LTE wireless video and OTT (over-the-top video) strategy,” the company explained in its statement Tuesday. It continued:

“AOL’s key assets [...]

Today’s Play: An Experiment in Trying New Video Games

Back in January, I wrote about my video game backlog and how desperately “in the hole” I was. I’m doing a bit better now, thanks to the fact that I knocked out a few of the games on my list (Wind Waker HD, BioShock Infinite, Portal 2, The Stanley Parable). Unfortunately, a significant backlog still remains.

My situation got me thinking — what can I do to get myself to at least *experience* some of these titles? That’s half the battle, really. Starting something new can be tough. And when you’re like me, and you find it hard [...]
